American Standard OutReach Faucet Review & Giveaway

The New OutReach Centerset Lavatory Faucet Puts Innovation and Convenience Well Within Reach

Logo In April, American Standard released it’s newest bathroom faucet, the OutReach. The OutReach features a pullout spout like you’d find on a kitchen sink! How fantastic is that? It will extend 24”.


The first thing I had to do was find out if my sink was Centerset to be able to install the OutReach faucet. Thankfully, it was.


Next I had to install the faucet! I thought I may have taken on too much as I’ve never been a plumber.


IMG_3229I took apart my old faucet, AFTER I had turned off the water! Side note, make sure you have all the tools you need so you don’t have to make a special trip to the hardware store.


The instructions that came with the American Standard OutReach faucet were spot on! I had no problems with putting the faucet together.


IMG_3429Ok, I just lied, sorta. I couldn’t figure out how to get the pipe from the old faucet off. I showed the instructions to a co-worker of mine and he in turn showed me in the directions what needed to be done.


One of the nice features that I appreciate after having to deal with the above mentioned issue, is American Standard’s exclusive Speed Connect drain. It installs effortlessly and never needs adjusting. The drain seals tightly so water stays in the sink, and the lift rod comes set to correct height and never comes loose.


Speed Connect drains are preassembled. Ordinary drains have as many as 14 parts to assemble. The lift rod comes set to correct height and never comes loose!


Here’s me with it installed! Yes, I have terrible lighting in my bathroom! Sorry it’s so “yellow”.




The OutReach did go on without a hitch and I had it up and washing hands in a couple of hours! No leaks, no spraying water. It works like a charm!


I am now officially a DIYer! If I can install this faucet you can too! Just have faith in yourself and read the directions.


imageWhat I find fantastic about this faucet is that I can fill up my mop bucket on the sink and not have to bend into the bathtub to lift it out. Filling my cleaning bottles with concentrate & water and not having to try, unsuccessfully, to not spill from the tipped bottle, is helpful!


Now it’s your turn to win the American Standard OutReach Lavatory Faucet (RV $98)! Your choice will be polished chrome or satin nickel finish.




Required: Head to American Standard and tell me which other faucet you like!


Giveaway open to US Residents 18 yrs and older. Please leave your email in the required entry or have it available in your profile. No email/contact = No entry. Giveaway ends 9/19 midnight PDT. Winner has 48 hours to respond.
